The McComb school district has made a change to its public record policy. The Courier reports officials are no longer required to give an estimated time frame of when the documents will be made available. The change to the policy was made Wednesday, following a month where several requests were made.
Superintendent Meri Skilliter says they made the change because sometimes there are outside influences on when records can be gathered that are out of the district’s control. For instance, they could be at the mercy of an attorney or the schedule of the person who has access to the records.
Skilliter also said that it’s usually no problem when only a few requests are made. However, when they are flooded with requests it can disrupt office productivity.
